On completion of the course students will be able to:
- demonstrate a familiarity with contemporary literary and cultural theory and concepts related to questions of identity, and agency, liminality and hybridity by situating these theories in the larger cultural, social, and ideological context of Colonialism, Postcolonialism and Transculturality.
- show a critical understanding of a selection of works within the genre of World Literatures in English in the light of these theories and concepts in the form of independent analyses and interpretations
- communicate and argue for, orally and in writing, their own interpretations and critical judgements of the literary, as well as the critical and theoretical, texts in an appropriate and convincing academic English
- critically reflect upon and give constructive criticism to the work of their peers and to participate in critical debates within the scope of the course.
The course is examined through continuous assessment of seminar activities, oral and written work, and a final paper. The student‘s ability to hand in and complete assignments on time is taken into consideration in the assessment.
